This hawker stall at Amoy Street Food Centre has come a long way since its humble beginnings in 2013, working its way to being awarded the Michelin Bib Gourmand in both 2016 and 2017. Run by Shatec graduates and fine-dining-trained chefs Gwern Khoo and Ben Tham, A Noodle Story puts a premium spin on local wanton noodles, and their service is top-notch too! Brave the queues for their lauded Singapore Style Ramen ($7). Unlike what its name suggests, the base features thin, springy wanton noodles laced in an umami-rich sauce, topped with painstakingly prepared ingredients — juicy prawn-filled dumplings, a crisp-golden potato prawn, an oozy lava egg and, in Tastemaker Kelly Wong's words, "melt-in-your-mouth chashu bathed in a sweet and savoury gravy". Be prepared to wait an average of 30 minutes for a bowl of this deliciousness, although the Burpple community seems to have had luck with 15-minute waits when they visit at the magic hour of 6:15pm. Our advice? Better early and wait than late, for they close the stall the moment noodles run out, more or less around 7pm.
Avg Price: $10 per person
